New York's smart grid love-fest (and how to have one in your state)
Smart Grid News
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been ultra-tough on utilities, as we told you early this year when Cuomo asked for the power to shut down under-performing utilities. But he and other New York leaders are in love with the smart grid, now that they see it as a way to make the state more resilient to storms and floods.

A geographer mentors job seekers
Directions Magazine
By Tom Zumbado: My father-in-law once told me that job hunting is a full-time job. I got the gist of what he was saying, but I never fully understood the magnitude of his words until it came time for me to start searching.
